Default Marco



Introducing Marco, a 2000 XJ for my son. We picked it up in Florida last week on spring break. It has 211,xxx miles on it, supposedly with a lower mile engine swap. The name comes from the seller - a Hispanic gentleman we bought it from. He was pretty cool. He's got the jeep bug too, had another XJ & a YJ.

I looked it over, bought some fluids, spare belt, checked tire pressures, etc and drove it down there a couple of days. It would shut off when warm so we threw a new CPS on it and fixed a couple of bad grounds. Seemed to cure it. So, Saturday my wife & son jumped in and followed me all the way to Michigan. 1100 miles without a hitch. Even pulled 19 mpg. Only flaw was no heat. I gotta give my wife credit for driving 17 hours with no heat and hardly complaining at all.

Build plan-front end rebuild, 2.5" lift, 30-31" tires, fab bumpers, etc.

Take a look at rough country's new stuff if you are building this budget minded. They apparently moved to a different manufacturer for their parts for better quality.
I just helped install a rough country long arm kit on a WJ and it seemed like everything was very good quality for the price. Even the shocks were badass and built by gabriel. Lol

Thanks. I showed him the pic and he said "I think I can build that, don't want to spend the money". I think their price is reasonable but I don't want to discourage him building or watching his money. He's about half done & it's coming out pretty decent.
